Artist Statement : "There was much joy for me in doing the drawings and paintings of Yehudi Menuhin. Spending so much time together in my studio gave me the opportunity of understanding his thoughts and feelings about so many things not only in music and the arts but also the wonder of life itself. His presence was truly inspirational."
